The article highlights the complaints that job seekers usually voice out about recruiters. Many job seekers claim that recruiters take a number of weeks to select even the first round of qualified candidates for an opening. Job seekers also believe that recruiters seem to have no knowledge of the applicant's field or even an understanding of what is involved in doing a certain job. They also think that recruiters sometimes have lack of flexibility when serving applicants.
